Abstract : The author examines the recent eruption of hostilities between Yemen and its neighbor, Saudi Arabia. He describes how the two countries have come to be so alienated from each other, and suggests ways in which Yemen could be assisted economically and also how tensions between it and Saudi Arabia could be relaxed. If Yemen and Saudi Arabia were to get into a real shooting war, the author concludes, this could have significant adverse repercussions for the welfare of American strategic interests in the Persian Gulf.
